Like a haunting fairy tale, Vylet’s sophomore single, Lightning is a magical experience that is hard to escape from. The track contains the ability to enchant like only those in tales can.

Vylet’s hazy vocals float dreamily over the stripped back electronic production, each moment like a cloud of beauty. The piece has a captivating tone to it, building subtly as the track progresses.

The shimmering production, and deep noted keys couple perfectly with the haunting nature of the piece, with the lyrics telling of a mystical “lightning bolt love”. There is an emotional distance in the piece, with the lyrics appearing separate from the cause of emotion. It creates a feeling of loss and despair that is hard to convey so effectively as here.

It’s still early days for Vylet, but it’s hard not to see the potential, and imagine playing her on repeat. We can only hope that we get new releases in the near future, but until then we can just keep hitting play on Lightning.
